History at Sunset: “A great deal of labor was…expended in building breastworks….” Exploring the Civil War Entrenchments at Cedar Creek
August 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Some of the most well preserved original Civil War entrenchments in the Shenandoah Valley are located on the bluffs above Cedar Creek. Join Park Ranger Jeff Driscoll for a special walking tour that explores both the construction of these field fortifications and their role during the Battle of Cedar Creek. Preserved by the Cedar Creek Battlefield Foundation and the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation, these earthworks are the “hidden gems” on the battlefield. Meet at the Visitor Contact Station (7712 Main Street, Middletown, VA 22645). Visitors will then car-pool to another sites to explore the entrenchments.
